Hi Jerry! Great to see a Goshen neighbor on our TW site! We also care for land in our shared 'Squalicum Mt. Watersheds', just south of Goshen's watershed of Anderson Creek.
Sometimes I think of our combined rural area's as being called the 'Harmony' area. We are somewhat connected with the Rome Grange. Have any of the Goshen neighbors connected with the Rome Grange, or are they going to the one on the other side of the river? (I've been hearing that some of the granges are closing our area they are one of the only rural public gathering places, along with the fire-halls). Sure would be great to have a Goshen group on our TW site, and be able to connect in with some of our rural neighbors that are also working towards a reducing their dependence on fossil fuels! Let us know when there is a work-party or gathering, and we would join in the fun!

Hi Jerry - Great to see you here! I have been thinking about asking if I could be invited to the next Transition Goshen meeting. I am still pondering the Anderson Creek property and would like to meet the 'villagers' that live there already, share my ideas and see if there is any support for them. Do you think you could keep me in mind when you all set up your next shindig? Thanks! Hi to Virginia :-)
